This picture illustrates why this title has been awarded the Packard Motor Car
Company. Here is a Packard vee-type 8-cylinder motor, designed and built for
the United States Tank Corps by Packard for the exact purpose for which it is
best suited, ie, propelling a ponderous tank where vibration has no part in
specifications nor beauty of line and simplicity in design are discussed in the
calculation of the result.
Packard has no prejudice about motors. It has built practically all types of
water and air-cooled motors that were best suited for their individual purposes.
PACKARD CAN CLAIM WIDER EXPERIENCE IN THE BUILDING OF GASOLINE ENGINES IN ALL
CONCEIVABLE FORMS THAN CAN ANY OTHER MANUFACTURER IN THE WORLD.
Judgment comes only through experience. That's why age is usually wiser than
youth. Packard knows what is best by actual practical experience. We have built
1-cylinder, 2-cylinder, 4-cylinder, 6-cylinder, 8-cylinder, 12-cylinder,
18-cylinder and 24-cylinder engines - EACH DESIGNED AND BEST SUITED FOR ITS
SPECIAL PURPOSE.
Is it any wonder that out of all this experience - out of what we have learned
in aircraft, marine and automobile, engine designing - that we today proclaim the
8-cylinder in line automobile engine as not only the acme of perfection but the
ultimate in design and simplicity?
